Detox Coordination

Who Needs Detox?

Chemical dependency to alcohol and/or drugs may require medical detoxification. It can be dangerous, sometimes fatal, to stop taking some substances suddenly without medical intervention. It is always advisable to consult with professionals before stopping.

Certain substances are especially dangerous upon sudden cessation of use. Individuals who are addicted to the following should seek medical detoxification from trained clinicians:

  • Alcohol
  • Prescription opioids
  • Heroin
  • Benzodiazepines

Medical detox occurs in a controlled clinical environment supervised by physicians and other addiction treatment professionals. Clients can expect to receive top-level care in a comfortable, home-like environment, along with regular administration of medications that fight cravings and withdrawals.
